1 teaspoon vanilla essence
100g chopped macadamia nuts
100g ground macadamia nuts
pinch of salt
50g granulated sugar

Sift flour and salt together into a large bowl and set aside.
Cream butter and granulated sugar together, then add vanilla essence.
Gradually add flour into butter and beat until smooth.
Add macadamia nuts and coconut.
Roll dough into a cylinder about 3.5 centimetres in diameter, wrap in cling film and refrigerate for at least six hours.
Once chilled, slice biscuits .5cm thick and place on a greased baking tray.
